The gas station. (Afternoon location)

This spotting location is on a gas station called "El Paso 2000", it's a little far from the aircrafts, you'd need a 200mm zoom for this place.

It's quite hard to reach it, just look for the entrance to the gas station and you'll see a pad for spotters and people viewing aircrafts.

Some examples here:

Behind this gas station there's an Aviocar C-212 belog to the Spanish Air Force. This one crashed at Lanzarote airport during landing and just got retired.

Example on video!
